Practice Areas

Executive Employment

Levine Plotkin specializes in advising executives in their employment relationships in book and magazine publishing, television, film, media, theater, fashion, beauty and other creative industries.  We regularly assist individuals in structuring and negotiating new employment agreements and extensions of existing employment relationships. Our deep understanding of the creative industries in which we practice and our strong familiarity with industry norms for similar level executives enable us to counsel our clients most effectively regarding appropriate compensation structure and other key contract terms.  Additionally, we frequently advise individuals who are ending their relationship with their current employers and assist them in negotiating their severance packages and other exit-related terms.

We also advise independent employers in the entertainment and media industries in the structuring and negotiating of their employment relationships with their executives with a view to protecting the business interests of the employer while enabling the company to attract and secure top talent.
